    It's happy end of fiscal year. Personally, I think that might be offensive to socialists, but here we go.

    “For educational institutions, a December gathering may instead be called an ‘end of semester’ party,” advises a guide released by the school titled, “A ‘Festivus for the Rest of Us’: Tips to plan an all-inclusive, multicultural holiday party at the office.” “For a business office, an ‘end of (fiscal) year’ party may be more appropriate,” it continues. The guide also advises party planners to “avoid religious symbolism, such as Santa Claus, evergreen trees or a red nosed reindeer, which are associated with Christmas traditions, when sending out announcements or decorating for the party.”

    Actually, this really did surprise me a little although I'm not sure why. The breakdown of holiday is holy day although nobody recognizes that anymore.

    The atheists in Warren got their "Keep Saturn in Saturnalia" sign up in the Mound RD median at Chicago RD before the guy has gotten his nativity set up, if he's going to do it this year. They think they are clever and funny.
